Pursuant to Tennessee Code Annotated Section 40-39-201, members of the public are not allowed to use information from the registry to inflict retribution or additional punishment to offenders.
Harassment, stalking, or threats against offenders or members of their families are prohibited and doing so may violate both Tennessee criminal and civil laws.
The information contained in an offender's record does not imply listed individuals will commit a specific type of crime in the future, nor does it imply that if a future crime is committed by a listed individual what the nature of that crime may be.
The TBI makes no representation as to any offender's likelihood of re-offending.
Under current state law, he'll be on the list until 2031.
You talk to people more that you would imagine, you confide in them more that you would expect.
If you believe that information concerning a specific offender is incorrect, please contact the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Sex Offender Registry at 1 (888) 837-4170.
Citizens who have information on offenders or inquiries about information contained in the state's Sex Offender Registry can contact the Sex Offender Registry Hotline at 1 (888) 837-4170, Monday through Friday, from AM until PM CDT and weekends between AM and PM CDT, excluding holidays, or by email at [email protected]
Some states, such as Iowa and Florida, have found that residency restrictions can make it very difficult to track sex offenders who have become homeless.
Having ready access to victims, in private and secretive environments, is how sex offenders thrive.
Though much of the information in the registry is of record, some of the information contained on the registry is obtained directly from offenders.
